The food... the servers... the atmosphere... all perfect!! Taps and apps from 3-5 great deal and Delicious! Kid friendly amenities and dining. We live to come here for dinner after a long ride up from Boston and are treated like family by the lovely servers! Great way to leave the work week behind!

My husband and I picked the Bethel Inn to have our annual family strategy weekend. It was a perfect retreat. The room was large, comfortable and clean. The facilities are top notch. We cross country skied during the day and relaxed sore muscles in the pool and sauna at night. We used the tavern for our planning sessions and we...

Thanks for taking the time to send along such a nice review. We host many family events here at the resort and I think our staff enjoys their visits as much as the families do! Our outdoor heated pool is a favorite, especially after a day on our ski trails. We will look forward to your return. Allen Connors Managing...

We encourage our guests to make their reservations directly with us to avoid mishaps. So sorry the snow storm created so much inconvenience for you. It has resulted in the start of a great ski season but, as always, it is tough on our guests during the tidying-up phase when some of our guests are busy clearing snow from their...

Thanks for taking the time to write and pointing out the reservation problem. We encourage our guests to book directly through us to ensure proper handling of their reservations.

We had a fabulous stay with our family. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, and the inn itself has a cozy, festive atmosphere. The breakfast buffet was awesome. There was a dinner buffet during Christmas week that was also good. It made dinner go really smoothly with our large family!

It was perfect setting for our 27th anniversary, cross country skiing, sleigh ride and skating. The best thing was the staff, especially Matty in the Millbrook Travern. The morning staff at the breakfast buffet also top notch. They also have a heated outdoor pool, not quite warm enough for me. To top it off we woke up to 20 inches...

Congratulations on your 27th… just sorry I missed doing it personally. We celebrated our 100th birthday in 2013 and we are continually updating and improving this venerable property but sometimes we miss some details that need to be looked after.

We were looking for a different thing to do this Thanksgiving and decided upon the package deal that the Inn offered - not a mistake! From our arrival to our departure, we found the front desk staff, the cleaning staff, and the wait staff to be friendly and most accommodating. Even though we arrived very early for check-in, we were...
